“We’re all in this together.”
At least, that’s what millions of Americans have heard for months from corporate advertisers, friends on social media, and, of course, from government officials.
If the behavior of our elected leaders is any indication, however, it would seem that many of them have chosen to live by another phrase: “You’re all in this together.”
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A Tulsa-based company accepted a $2.1 million deposit from the State Department of Health to purchase masks but then failed to deliver or refund the money to the state, Attorney General Mike Hunter alleged in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.
For months, Americans have been treated to story after story of politicians and bureaucrats implementing restrictive coronavirus mandates or guidelines, only to be caught violating those mandates themselves.
The Oklahoma Health Department has ordered more than $9 million in masks from a company in Tulsa that didn't exist a month ago, records show.
A partner in the new company also is the owner of a Tulsa dueling pianos bar.
You would think that after a handful of these accounts made national news, our leaders would get the hint. At the very least, maybe they’d be more wary about flaunting their own edicts, or try harder not to get caught.
This tool is not about playing a political game of “Gotcha!” It is about protecting and restoring confidence in our governing institutions—a confidence that has been especially shredded by many leaders’ response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The American people are hardy and resilient in the face of any challenge. But after months of forced lockdowns, school closures, and lost livelihoods, they shouldn’t be asked to live by a set of rules that don’t seem to apply to those in positions of authority.
It’s not too much ask that these officials display the most basic sense of integrity. And it is only appropriate that we call them out when they stubbornly refuse to do so.
These violations of the people’s trust are far more damaging than just momentary blips of disgust or outrage on the public radar. They undermine our very institutions, and the American people’s confidence in them.
Perhaps at no other time has it been more important for Americans to trust our leaders and believe that they have our best interests at heart. Our world is only growing more dangerous, and the list of challenges we face at home and abroad only grows longer, not shorter.
If we truly wish to tackle those challenges and overcome what will no doubt prove to be formidable obstacles and adversaries, our officials will have to play a vital role in leading the country. Such leadership, however, is impossible without trust.
DeMarco insisted last week that all the personal protective equipment suppliers are vetted. Does Mr DeMarco always say things that are not true? i mean he vetted a company in hours that he was a part of or had dealings with.
Records show the company was formed on March 23, the same day the state made its first purchase order with the company. and this was his statement:
"I think there are brand new companies all over the world that were formed to try to move PPE supplies around," he told The Oklahoman. "Our primary concern is that they're going to be able to deliver."which is exactly what this tulsa based african-american company Noitavonne a manufactoring tech and all ppe related products company, here in tulsa oklahoma was doing. Where both mr Gino DeMarco and Governor Kevin stitt along with numerious other officials including the fire marshal were present and who knew of noitavonne's capacity to fullfill all ppe orders. But no response from any of the officials i guess they would rather have the american public at risk during life threating crisis.
When DeMarco was asked how suppliers are checked out, he said, "Every one is a little bit different. So im guessing that ment the color of your skin as well.
And Making purchase decisions for the Health Department is Gino DeMarco, who calls himself the "PPE Supply Chain Leader." He served the state before the pandemic as deputy tourism director. "stating,"It could be somebody that we've done business before with as a state. It could be somebody that certain agencies have done business with. There's just a lot of ways to vet a vendor. Calling references. There's plenty of ways to vet whether or not someone's going to deliver or not," DeMarco said. Seems like Mr DaMarco Says alot of things that are not true or maybe ..
The state secretary of health, Jerome Loughridge, has authorized prepayment for personal protective equipment and other life-sustaining equipment, The Oklahoman has learned. That authorization extends to PPE Supplies LLC, the new Tulsa company, That Mr DeMarco is a part of through friendship or business. The same company that was started the same day that the funding was approved to a company that did not exist before then. intresting? well its not.
Many people dont understand what blacklisting is, but Blacklisting companies is a form of discrimination. Many people are discriminated against because of the color of their skin or their political background or views. Others are discriminated against because of their religious beliefs. and truly its not like it hasn't been done before because it has 1970 October 30 Secret Oklahoma “Blacklist”
